On the website of the Federal Communications Commission of the United States (Federal Communications Commission — FCC), data appeared on the registration of a wireless portable speaker with a battery by Sonos. Any similar product must pass such registration at the very beginning, so data from the FCC website very often becomes a source of information about models that manufacturers still keep secret. This was the case with the previous Sonos wireless speaker.
This time it was found out that the novelty is registered under the number S27 (and the previous portable device, Sonos Move, had the number S17 in the FCC. In addition, it is clear from the same documentation that the novelty will receive a dock for wireless charging and will receive Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11 ac) modules.
The size of the future portable speaker is indirectly indicated by the energy consumption parameters specified in the FCC documentation: they are lower than the Sonos Move. It is logical to assume that the novelty will be smaller in size. It is worth remembering that the compact column of the Sonos Move can be considered a stretch: this model will definitely not fit in a purse, except only in a backpack.
The published information allows you to make guesses about the design of the new column. On the same site, a view of the label located on the lower plane is published. The inscriptions running in a circle clearly say that the novelty will have a cylindrical (or so) body. This means that, most likely, its sound will be omnidirectional.
There is no data on the price of the future model yet. But it is logical to assume that it should still be lower than the $400 that in the US you have to pay for the Sonos Move.
